I've only seen the changes in the latest diffs for the Debian package,
not what you said is supposed to do the same thing as sperber's

The version in the latest debian package has such a shortcoming.

I was only commenting on what you wrote above.  Mail isn't always
delivered by the same sort of system on which you read it.  That's
especially so with a site-wide spool.  It looks as though the
mechanism in Debian has even been changing, so an older system doing
the delivery may not be consistent with a new client.
